Question: do you play games?
The reason I am asking, is because I see SLI for both - old and new configuration. There is no advantage of using SLI in 3D rendering and in most cases it would mess up things.
For iClone you only need 1 GPU. If you are actively using Iray with iClone, then 2+ GPUs makes sense (still without bridge).
Render speed wise - I am not sure. GDDR6 might outperform GDDR5X. Somebody who has data to compare might tell more.
But then you are loosing 4GB of VRAM, which is a lot! iClone is VRAM hungry. 8GB is not enough for fairly large scenes with dense texture nowadays.
The rest seems to be an upgrade. Though I do not understand second 2TB HDD. Just tell them to supply SSD as well.
There is no storage with iClone.
I have iClone installed on OS SSD drive and all content and projects are on second drive. Having 2 1TB drives I am running our of space! Need upgrade soon.
That is given I have external 6TB drive for storage and backups.
